ordered google to stop seeking to exclude competitors using standard and essential patents that motorola, which google later purchase, at first promise but then refused to license unfair and reasonable terms. these essential patents and others like them are the cornerstone of the system of interoperability standards that ensure that wireless internet devices and mobile phones and talk to one another. it's something all of us use our daily lives and we've come to take for granted. over half of american consumers own and use one of these devices, including iphone, android phones and xbox. today's action by the commission ensures that competition continues to work for the benefit of american consumers in these important markets. now, years ago motorola promised to license its patents essential to these interoperability standards, called standards of central patents, on fair and reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms. those are called fran terms. to any interested manufacture. other companies took motorola at its word. over many years relying on this promise, they invested billions and proba

would be reading something in a newspaper and go "who is that guy?" and they'd go to google and search it. the right thing to do was to design those applications so that the "wall street journal" gave you their bio of the person and their financial stuff. >> rose: so if you read a name you could go there. >> just touch it and it pops up. so on the ipad, that's where things are going. there are a whole bunch of people doing that today. publishers, you see this already with the journal, the "times" does it relative to stock prices so that automatically will show you the ticker and the stock price if you're reading this thing on line, the "new york times" has things where you can look up the meaning of words and that's the beginning of it. i'm saying i think the search engine was the result of a mistake that won't be made again so we'll always have search engines but every app on apple's operating system is effectively a search engine of one kind or another. if you go into yelp it's because you're looking for a restaunt. if you go into skype it's because you're looking to call somebody up
the break. >>> want a tough call? google is a company that missed the last quarter badly. no plan for picking up the slack of a slow down in advertising. the result, a huge downdraft. a hundred point drop. frightening. [ ghost ] devastating to the bulls. now look at the stock. google is creeping back to the levels before the disappointment. in doing so before we see any hard numbers it tells us to retake the ground. why not just sell, sell, sell. sell the darn stock. three reasons. first the decision by the ftc to let google off without as much as a slap on the wrist let alone restrictions and breakups. it's monumental for those of us old enough to remember the dramatic show down between the justice department and microsoft in the 19 t 0s. you had to fear they would look at google's market share at 70% and decide it's a monopoly and like so many others abusing its power. [ boo ] but unlike microsoft which tried to hammer the government the way it hammered the competition, google went in not with guns blazing but with no weapons at all. the whole time they were in the government's
recession, helping drive the u.s. economic recovery. >> susie: and a win for google. the web's 800 pound gorilla is cleared of anti-trust charges when it comes to its online search business. >> tom: that and more tonight on "n.b.r."! >> susie: congress is back to work in washington, after a one day break. new members of the 113th congress were sworn in today, including 100 freshmen. they face huge challenges: fights over the sequester and the debt ceiling coming around march first. and as sylvia hall reports, there are low expectations lawmakers can get the job done peacefully. >> reporter: returning lawmakers didn't get much of a break after that bruising fiscal cliff battle. they're back in washington today, swearing in the new congress. demographically, it's the most diverse group ever sworn in. but politically, this congress is expected to deliver the same gridlock as the last one. >> the problem is that the congress is very vided, not only are the two houses divided, but each party is further away from the middle than has been in the past, and the public- the american public itself,

the communications act. another thing to consider about this issue is will google provide the same rule as corporate rabbis, if you will, to guide this issue forward. he was the top issue for them. >> host: there was talk of rewriting the telecom act of the 1990s. what do you think about this? >> guest: there has been a lot of talk for about a decade. i think some members are more inclined to try and just deal with specific issues and think it might be too difficult at this point in time. one has to remember that that law came here by 1934. it was kind of digging into all of the past. and i think that is a big thing that we have to talk about. roger wicker is likely to become the ranking member of the communications and internet pendulum. all of those things have yet to be solidified. >> guest: i think the broader communications is that we are any period of great destruction. things like netflix, apple, the itunes store, it is not yet clear how consumers will get their content when all available options are there. it needs more time to shake out before they try to set these boundaries. >> guest: the
investigation into how google does business. google agreed to two settlements, one over patent licensing, the other gives advertisers more flexibility over their online campaigns. but, in a big win for the search giant, the agency, said google, does not favor its own products and services in its internet search results. after 20 months of digging into google's business practices, looking at everything from search to cell phones, and sifting through more than nine million pages of documents collected from google and competitors, the nation's anti- trust watchdog agreed with google, that when it comes to search, google follows its pledge "to do no evil." >> i think today's decisions show that in order for there to be antitrust enforcement you have to have clear evidence that consumers are harmed, and while there was certainly a threat of consumer harm on this patent issue, there was no consumer harm on the search related issues. >> reporter: today's settlements ends all of the f.t.c.'s competition related investigations into google. the company agreed to grant fair and reasonable patent li
thing to consider about this issue is will google as one tech veteran said to me provide the same role as corporate rabbi, if you will, to guide this issue forward? if you recall several years ago, you know, they came up with a deal with verizon, it was a top issue for hem. a lot -- for them. a lot has changed since that time, and now they have a much more diverse portfolio of public policy issues to deal with, so i think it'll be very interesting to see who comes to the stage to make a play for net neutrality if the court does, you know, strike down the rules. >> host: well, speaking of issues that have been around for a while, there's talk potentially in the 113th of rewriting the cable act; of rewriting the telecom act from the 1990s. what kind of future of do you see for those issues? >> guest: there's a lot of talk, and there's been a lot of talk for about a decade. based on my reporting, i'm not personally convinced there's going to be any kind of major rewrite, and i think it would be prudent to raise the point that one of the great champions, senator jim demint, has stepped dow
. the reason why we're showing you google shares is you can see the obvious spike higher in shares of google, up more than 1%. why would this be happening? it's social search. perhaps it's a britd of a relief rally today. it's fallen behind google. not moving tremendously. a little bit volatile, but nonetheless on the move. let me point out shares of google trading a tremendous amount of vacuum. it just blew through its ten-day average vacuum of 78.5 million shares. worth keeping in mind, the strong has trade up 60%. much more to come throughout "power lunch." sue, i'll send it back to you. >> all right. scott. as a matter of fact, david's sitting right next to me and he says, we've got to talk about this. to scott's point this is a different type of search. do you buy it or not? >> i think google is great company but i don't think you should get excited from anything we've heard so from on facebook. facebook has such a macive amount of useful information that they have never made easily available to people in this kind of a way. also you've got to wonder how it affects facebook's partnershi
, appreciate it. investigators are gearing up for google's earnings. after the bell, we will have the numbers for you as soon as they cross. the biggest question in anybody's mind is can google keep up with facebook when it comes to mobile search revenue. it is a tough business. joining me now to talk about his expectations for google and what we should be looking for. seems to be about revenue and advertising. can they make the mobile platform work? >> the mobile platform is working fairly well right now. certain markets accounting for over half paid search growth. google is between my expectations in terms of overall numbers. are there challenges? absolutely. advertisers will pay less. cheryl: the click through revenue, see where we're at in the mobile space as well. 740 right now, we're looking at the estimates, glad our producers are bringing in this stock pick. will they get a surprise because it are not evaluating the quarter specifically when it comes to the sale of a just completed? >> that causes some muddiness. some investors have possibly pulled out. cheryl: do you think analysts h
. > and what do you think about the market winners? microsoft, caterpillar, and google surged yesterday. > > what happened is facebook was talking about what they're building, and they're building a search engine, right? that was the big rumor. and the minute they came out and said they are going to have a search engine, but they are going to have a search engine on facebook to try to give users more time to stay on facebook, what happened to google? google was off to the races. it rallied about $12 when facebook came out with disappointing news. facebook sold off, and what was bad for facebook was good for google, so that one rallied. google is another one with earnings within the next week, so i am going to keep an eye on google for earnings. they disappointed majorly last time on earnings, so it should be interesting to see what happens in that. > good to have you on the show. thanks andrew. > > thank you. members of the house trimmed down the amount of federal assistance included in a bill to help millions affected by superstorm sandy. what may be lost in discussions is that the cut
at noon, janine de la vega tell us why even google cannot do much to protect your information. >> reporter: if you are a google user, then this matters. a new report out by the search engine shows the government is increasingly requesting information about users. >> i don't like the fact that the government is coming in and requesting information about personal usage and certain things like that, you know, i don't think it is any -- none of their business, basically. >> reporter: today, google released its report and this shows that data requests have increased by more than 70% since 2009. this man says he's surprised the number is not higher and some should be concerned for their privacy. >> i think folks need to consider, particularly if they are searching at or in some other public venue where they are being actively monitored what they are doing could reflect them on -- on them poorly. >> reporter: 68% of the requests to google were from subpoenas which are easier to get because any don't involve judgeses and the rest were through the search warrants and the electronics privacy act. >>
google's contribution to enabling success to the internet by wi-fi? >> what we did, the african situation as usual is worse than fire else. as a society, as a global society, we got to sort of look at ourselves and think how have we allowed these terrible, terrible things to occur over several decade. what is the story of the internet in africa? >> it is the most expensive in africa which is the poorest part of the world. how can this be? in many cases, distance, satellites and a monopoly of providers. there is no really good excuse for this. what we have done is we have built proxy caches we put in each of the countries to speed up the internet. we have been funding competitive carriers and in particular competitive fiber to that. the questioner asks with a do we know about internet with wi-fi. you have your phone and the 3 g connection, the connection that enables your phone to work is impossibly expensive. it turns out that more than half of the mobile traffic is not on the cellular providers, 3 g or 4g. it's known as wi-fi, 80211 in the reuters that people use. it's easy to
